Someone call my Mum and tell her we're off to the cinema this again Friday coz her Son is on the big screen again 🙌🏾🙏🏾😁
Anyone that watches my stories know I'm a advocate for positivity and this film/documentary will give you more of a insight as to why I'm like that.
A hybrid of documentary and reconstruction, this film explores the shockwaves that follow each of the 11 shootings. At a time when governments and the media are wrestling with the realities of violent crime, it’s never been more pressing to understand why people resort to the casual use of lethal weapons on Britain’s streets. Gun No. 6 uses testimony from loved ones left behind, and from the police, to explore the consequences of gun crime for the victims, their families and the community. It also offers a window into the world of former-perpetrators of gun crime, exploring the reasons young men pick up and use firearms.
And to try and understand a world where young men choose to pick-up illegal guns, Bafta nominated director James Newton assembles a group of five ex-offenders, all unconnected to Gun No. 6, but who have served time for serious firearms offences and have turned their lives around since leaving prison. They take on the role of gunmen and victims and re-enact the 11 shootings of Gun No. 6, based on the limited information in police records, as a way of asking them to revisit their own experiences, choices and actions.
